Abstract

This paper is outcome of baseline research based on assessment of intervention performed by Khadak Municipality, and of individual/public claims. An assessment is carried out from institutional perspectives, as well as from perspective of shared social construct of reality. For the baseline assessment of municipal waste management of current situation of bio-degradable and non- bio-degradable waste management system of Khadak Municipality, mix method approach was followed. Questionnaire, key informant interview (KII), focus group discussion (FGDs) as methods were applied to generate data/information. Collected data/information was entered in database developed on MS excel, analysed, and interpreted descriptively. From the wider theoretical horizon: institutional and shared social construct, when observed empirically, the waste management intervention arranged and performed by municipality is insufficient, and ineffective, which corresponds a shared social claims in a municipality.
